The results of between resistance and optical transparency measurement in DOT-3 brake fluid contaminated moisture and particles generated from fraction of brake system was compared. Conventional resistance measurement method was known to be effaced by it`s hygroscopic characteristics. However, the particle is a significant element of the contamination sources. Proposed optical transparency measurement is linear and effective than that of contamination in brake fluid.
